Zarqnon The Embarrassed


JW McLaughlin is an abstract musician with a background in IT, heavy metal (bass player), degrees in Educational Research, Business, and Information Systems, and a former coffee shop owner. He is an inquisitor of chemistry, biology, physics, music, philosophy, religion, sci-fi and a plethora of other subjects.

He is on the autistic spectrum, but did not know until around 40. Prior to this, he spent most of his life trying to understand his eccentric behaviors and fondness for the peculiar without any “assistance” or “therapy”. He described his thought process as “matrix thinking”, because everything he had ever learned, observed, and experienced existentially sat on that matrix and was accessible all the time, regardless of context or subject matter - there was no “breaking down of appropriate information due to specific topics”.

The reason he is using Zarqnon as the nomenclature for authorship of this book is simply because it amuses him. He like things that are unique and that break the typical - why do it the expected way? If he is violating some preconceived notion of “how it is supposed to be done”, then it begs the question “why is it expected to be done that way?” Stretching outside preconceived paradigms gives us the flexibility to experience divergent concepts within paradoxical work frames. He challenges the norm consistently (mostly because he does not understand the norm, and even when he does, he finds it “unconvincing” and personally unconventional).
